After taking a bit of time to conduct varying searches connected to the Armenian coup- it was hard to not notice that was a certain NGO that kept coming up.
The NGO known as the Union of Concerned Citizens
“The Union of Informed Citizens cooperates with all the well-known media and human rights organizations in Armenia.Keeping the above information in mind we should also pay attention to the fact that the alleged hero of the ‘democratic movement’ in Armenia is a man of the media. That would be Nikol Pashinyan
Independent Media outlets are our most important partners. We distribute our studies and publications through them to the wider public.”
Here's a 2013 article regarding Pashinyan/Pashinian
Pashinian, who for years run Armenia’s best-selling daily, “Haykakan Zhamanak,”Pashinyan himself said his movement would advocate a ‘velvet revolution’ in Armenia
The 38-year-old former editor, who is popular with many opposition supporters for his tough anti-government rhetoric, unveiled his new political team five months after publishing the Civil Contract’s manifesto. He said scores of Armenians have joined his initiative in the last few months but declined to give any numbers.
Pashinian also stated that his movement could advocate a “velvet revolution” in Armenia if serious fraud precludes regime change through elections. “We have come out to say that this regime will not be in power,” he said. “We find it very important to not just declare this commitment but also fulfill it through consistent, patient, calculated and accurate steps.”
Suddenly Pashinyan is going to be Prime Minister
Armenia's parliament is set to decide whether to back opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan as prime minister as his supporters rally in the capital.In plain talk Pashinyan has led a soft coup/velvet revolution. With the help of his media friendlies and an NGO with lots of western funding. He wants people to stay out in the streets to force the hand of the parliament because anything they do, any decision they make, that is not in favour of Pashinyan and his backers will be instantly met with a flood of media coverage-
Mr Pashinyan, who has led weeks of anti-government protests that forced former Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan to resign, is the only candidate.
He warned MPs of a "political tsunami" if they did not back him.
Armenia's ruling Republican Party said earlier it would not put up a candidate, in a bid to ease tensions.
But the protest leader said that there were moves aimed at halting his bid and he urged protesters to stay on the streets in the centre of Yerevan to prevent the Republican Party from "stealing the people's victory".
All of it negative. The supporters will riot and if police try to rein them in.. The whole thing will be spun as oppression. These conditions virtually guarantee Pashinyah will be Prime Minister-

The promote the meme of the Armenian Genocide being all Turkey’s fault and just Turkey's alone- “Turkey pay for your f*cking crime” - Without assigning blame to the Kurds for their outsized participation in it- but I digress. I love when the military industrial/entertainment complex promotes certain massacres that are advantageous to specific agendas while sweeping others under the rug. (That's me being facetious)
